It was a hole that was dug long before we arrived at five to dive alive...guaranteed to survive...and thrive!
That's a description from the POV of Jesus heading into the tomb.. !
And here he is out the other side, in the field yonder, absolutely liberated, generating heaven on earth to prepare a place for us all (one of many
reasons he should be imagined with a big geniune smile on his face).
To simply believe and accept that Jesus was Godsent, and then finish joining the circle of joy, so that together OUR joy is made complete.
That's the utter simplicity on the far side of complexity, and work that still remains largely undone, even among so-called Christians who are all
pious in their piety ie: cowed, their passion, gone, presuming that to follow Jesus Christ means to have no fun, but that's just not true, and a lie
of the worst kind. All sin hurts in one way or another, but the joy of Christ completed is a joy through and through because it's a joy that completes
us both and validates our mutual love for one another.
The only question remaining is - who among us will DARE to join the circle of joy..?!!!
I need to clarify something here re: Jesus state when he entered the tomb, lest my fellow Christians think I'm nothing but a raving "new age" heretic.
When Joseph of Arimathea (rich man, friend of Nicodemus) persuaded Pilate to allow him take the body of Jesus down and place it in his tomb for
While I do think that there was still a heartbeat,
and that he somehow, by the grace of God (literally) made it through the ordeal by
a mere thread, only to meet up with his friends again after exiting the tomb three days later, when they were walking, gloomily, along the Road to
Jesus' "temple" (his body) was indeed torn down and broken down, ripped, bruised, beaten, cut, and battered, and pierced (through hands and feet),
"broken down" even to the point of non-recognition, and as discussed earlier, he was obediant unto death, even the possibility of death on the cross,
entering into the ordeal although on the one hand certain of the outcome (rising again three days later) on the other, double-blind (self
orchestrated) and thus completely in the hands of his supreme faith in the father, even the father of a first/last cause with the soil already prepped
to recieve the seed and germinate it ie: all the information put out there, at all levels, to bring about the outcome (even if at one level, that
outcome may have secretly or unknown to Jesus, involved the participation of people like Nicodemus and Joseph of Arimathea, and a certain Roman
The point was that they couldn't kill him, couldn't do away with him, and that the grave couldn't hold him.
But there's more to it, than the simple and mundane explanation, which some might disgracefully call a "hoax" when in truth it was nothing of the sort
in the enactment of the ritual, and in the triumph of life meeting life in the resurrection life, because of the fact that, three days later, when he
did encounter his friends on the Road to Emmaus, although he appears to have utilized the art of disguise to initially hide his appearance from them,
there was nothing evident to them, except, when he showed them, the (now healing) holes in his hands, and a possible hole in his ribcage - to indicate
the presence of a severely beaten and bruised and slashed (from the whipping, thorns on forehead etc.) man.
Therefore, during the three days, his body temple WAS "rebuilt" and made healthy and whole, and healed (with the exception of the telltale piercings).
In other words, there WAS a miraculous healing, and the rebuilding of Jesus' temple-body.
Moreoever, there was a triumphant exiting of the tomb into a new life, as a domain of absolute liberation for Jesus, who didn't just "skip town" (as
if he could stay after all that?!) with his bride to be at his side (that's allowed and part of the human experience), no there was more to it than
that. Not only did he have the courage to face head on, and face down the devil and an evil empire and a corrupted "religious" order, while taking
upon himself like a one-time Bodhisatva all the sins of the world - he also had the courage to be happy
, where the first half of his life was
filled to overflowing with sorrow such that the more that sorrow and suffering has carved into one's being, the more joy they (we) can contain, and to
generate for US (not just himself) the place of heaven both here on earth, in manifestation, and above, so that we too, and those who were following
him (regardless of their fate ie: that they all ended up losing their earthly lives for his sake) upon return
(everything comes around full
circle), could be with him where he is "afterwards" (life lived in fullness) even in eternity. He knew what was at stake, and what was still required
of him, even if that meant he was to devote the rest of his life to living life to the FULL.
Leonardo davVinci had it all wrong about Jesus and his motives, which was always to include one and all, and to save and preserve them (us), unto the
cross AND beyond, by having the courage both to lay down his life for his friends AND take it back up again, as given to him by the father through the
signs that framed his life, in this case a full moon (full life) under the feet of Virgo, where at his birth it was but a narrow crescent.
And after 33 years, preparing one's self as the lamb of God, he surely deserved a holiday and some enjoyment!

Through the windows, outside of the box (the room and table is done in the shape of a cross), Jesus' untold story thereafter, having departed
Jerusalem, remains, as a very distinct possibility, beckoning us to also consider very seriously (see Road to Emmaus story, with Jesus employing a
masterfully well executed disguise, for a time, just for fun, and protection, hey you never know what people might want to try twice on the same guy!)
that imbedded in the ritual is also contained, BEST OF ALL, the very liberation that generates a whole new domain of heavenly bliss and joy, and
freedom, the freedom to live a whole human life, both to the depths of it's sorrow and suffering AND to the highest heights of joy, and blissful
happiness and peace and love, without constraint or hindrance, which for Jesus was the whole frame of his life leading up to that point of liberation,
but he makes his own liberation OURS also, and, while solving the age old problem of evil (human sin and suffering) he also invites us to both have
our cake and eat it too, by making of himself the spiritual cake itself!
He's good! Thought of every possible angle during that almost 20 years of training and contemplation. That he then proceeded to enter the scene and
carry out the work and PULL IT OFF, robbing the devil blind and making sure that everyone in the same spirit of love gets the same reward, WOW, just
WOW, what more is there to say?! LOL And if that weren't enough, he also had the courage, and the insight, to recieve his own, and also come into his
OWN glory, while glorifying both heaven and earth - remember that perfectly full moon? that to him would represent the opportunity both to complete
something AND to also start something anew, in the resurrected life, both for himself AND us as well, as a shared triumph and joyful celebration by
invitation, yet non-cocersive, not extended as an exclusive, but only as an all-inclusive proposition, at all levels both for him and us, and the
first father of all creation (first/last cause in eternity), who also experienced HIMself (so too is the father like the son, as the son is to the
father) through the person of Jesus Christ.
No one takes it from me, but I lay it down of my own accord. I have authority to lay it down and authority to take it up again. This command
I received from my Father ."
~ John 10:18
So the final "reframe" of daVinci's The Last Supper, to bring it back into congruent alignment with Jesus' underlying M.O. is that Jesus never
abandoned anyone and that we are all bride's to be with he the Bridegroom and together with him, we also get to transcend death and enjoy, with him, a
life lived to the full even from life to life in eternity.
DaVinci may have understood this, but I don't think so. Therefore it would appear that even genius of his
calibre has its limits!
